<Tsyesika>davexunit: well that does get me into a bash session but i have to type out the full paths i was wondering if there was an easier way but looks like grub isn't installed and i can't install it once i've chrooted in as i need the guix daemon
<davexunit>civodul: the key bit in the email is "maintainer scripts are not turned in functional (and revertible) expressions, so the only way to "undo" them is living without them, or restore whole parts of the filesystem (with the disk consumption problems other observed)"
<bavier>civodul: e.g., if a user requests Guix to install the nix package, could the build daemon create /nix/store as part of the installation?
<davexunit>think upgrading the sqlite database for an application or something
<civodul>davexunit: but what are "maintainer scripts"?
<rekado_>I wonder about the validity of the security concern. Even on Debian I can build software from sources. This may be vulnerable software. What exactly is the point here? You cannot prevent Guix users from running vulnerable software?
<rekado_>Or is it about the way a rollback can take you back to an incarnation of the same version that uses a vulnerable library that has since been patched? (Is this not addressed with grafts?)
<civodul>rekado_: right, sysadmins can prevent users from building stuff from source and such
